Our Adult Beginner Rowing class teaches the basics of rowing and sculling (rowing with 2 oars) from the beginning for those totally new to the sport, or for sweep rowers who'd like to switch things up a bit and learn to scull! You'll spend your time on the water in singles (1 person) and doubles (2 people) learning proper rowing technique along with boat handling and care. Simple exercises to build a base of strength in the body, especially the core, combined with some good cardio on the water, will help to develop your fitness, balance and flexibility.
Every participant will get a chance to row out on the beautiful Estuary and develop fitness at his/her own pace - it's a great outdoor substitute for a visit to the gym! By the end of the five weeks, you'll be comfortable handling your own boat and have a solid foundation for future rowing ventures!
We also offer Adult Intermediate Sculling Classes and Drop-In sessions for experienced rowers and scullers!
